Women's Para Hockey of Canada recognizes the importance of developing skills for athletes

of all ages and ability levels. We regularly host or partner with groups running try-it sessions, open development camps, and mentorship events in different regions across Canada (female specific and co-ed). Athletes get access to on- and off-ice sessions run by qualified coaches focused on learning new skills that can then be practiced on their own well after a camp.

These events are opportunities geared towards individuals with little to no experience level to get into a sled and learn the foundations of playing sledge hockey. No experience or equipment is necessary as equipment is provided. These events are inclusive to any age or ability level.

Try-It Events

Open development camps are structured

for players with experience so they can strengthen their existing skills and learn advanced skills. Players should have their own equipment and can be any age or ability level to attend these events.

Development Camps

Many of the national team members across Canada are actively involved in the growth and development of sledge hockey in their communities. Check out what local programs are lead by our elite female mentors.
